Indian secondary schools are to have a computer teacher, respectively, and the expenses related to the affair are to be borne by the central government, mentioned Kapil Sibal, HRD Minister told at an event organised by HP, the computer giant and TV channel CNBC. He mentioned that the government is open to any technology provider but who is not the ‘elitist’. The focus, he mentioned should be to provide every possible opportunity to a chidl for his own deveopment. The ICT teachers can be supported by a partnership between the government and the private sector.
He emphasised that for the education sector to improve and to make Right To Education a success, the state governments have to come together with the central government. ‘It is not about politics.’ He mentioned that everybody in government needs to understand that whatever is being done is for benefit of the students. Sibal also said that all states should chip in to improve education and make right to education a success. The minister also said that India will be most educated country in the world by 2030 and it will be the key to provide intellectual capital to all countries. This is going to happen because very soon the world will have dependent population (from both developed and developing nations) while India will emerge as a potential working human capital holder. Therefore, in interest of all the nations, even other nations, should work to make our population literate.
